Appellate Division virtual bench led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain passed the order on Monday

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court has upheld an order passed by its Chamber Judge Court that had stayed High Court (HC) order allowing bail to seven people convicted and sentenced in a case lodged over the 2002 attack on the motorcade of then leader of the opposition and incumbent Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in Satkhira. 

“Disposed of stay,” said an Appellate Division virtual bench led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain on Monday.

The apex court came up with the order after holding a hearing on a leave to appeal petition filed by the state against the High Court order. 

Attorney General AM Amin Uddin moved the state plea, while Barrister AM Mahbub Uddin Khokon argued for the defence. 

The High Court on May 26 allowed bail to the seven convicts after holding a hearing on separate petitions filed in this regard. 

The seven convicts are – Golam Rosul, Abdus Samad, Abdus Sattar, Johurul Islam, Rakib, Shahabuddin and Monirul Islam. 

Justice Hasan Foez Siddique of Appellate Division Chamber Judge Court on May 27 stayed their bail after holding a hearing on a state plea against the High Court order. 

The court also sent the matter for further hearing to the regular bench of the Appellate Division.

Miscreants hurled bombs on the convoy of then leader of the opposition Sheikh Hasina and even shot at her as her motorcade reached in front of Kolaroa upazila BNP office in Satkhira on August 30, 2002. 

They vandalized a couple of vehicles of the convoy also.

Many people including leaders and activists of the Awami League and newsmen accompanying the then leader of the opposition were injured in the attack.
